As a sucker for anything to do with tacos, I jumped at the chance to get three at Good Truckin’ Diner. For $8, I scooped up a trio of their Jamaican, El Pollo Loco and Cali tacos. Each was wrapped in a steaming, soft corn tortilla shell. They couldn’t have been more attractive if they tried.
The Jamaican tacos were filled to the brim with jerk chicken, refreshingly sweet grilled pineapple, a kick of habanero relish and some cilantro and pepper jack cheese. I’m not sure if it’s customary to eat a taco in three bites, but I demolished mine that way just the same.
The Cali tacos didn’t disappoint either with their avocado, pickled red onion, lime crema, Chihuahua cheese and cilantro filling. I hoovered this pick just as quickly as the first.
I stopped to inhale before my third, and favorite, choice: El Pollo Loco. This taco was laden with fried chicken, coleslaw, blue cheese, cilantro and buffalo sauce. The poor guy never saw it coming. Reader, I am not ashamed to say I ate this one in two bites.
